Gangadhar Gadgil is eminently readable. If you have been a big time reader of all time great storytellers like Anton Chekov, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, O. Henry, or even Somerset Maugham or Arthur Conan Doyle, you would do well not to apply the same scale here. India too has had great story tellers like Rabindranath Tagore, Krishan Chander, Premchand, Sharat Chandra, Amrita Pritam, RK Narayan, Ruskin Bond and a whole galaxy of others. Marathi literature alone has produced internationally acclaimed greats like Kusumagraj, Pu La Deshpande, Vijay Tendulkar, Namdeo Dhasal, Bhau Padhye, Satish Alekar, Daya Pawar, and many more. If you decide that you are not going to get into odious comparisons, you will certainly enjoy this collection of Gadgil’s stories.
